Did you also purge ssh{-{client,server}} and rm -fr /etc/ssh?  In my tests
regarding conffiles/transition names, I had to dpkg -i both the
transitional package and the new package name one in the same run (in your
case, ssh and ssh-server, both of the new version):
(it isn't clear to me why).

So: dpkg -i ssh_old.deb && dpkg -i ssh{,-{client,server}}_new.deb

I'm sorry that I don't have ssh access from this machine, otherwise I
would test it myself..

Delicate to reproduce and robust against correction?
